Description: In the heart of the Haymarket area of Edinburgh, the Metro West End Restaurant and Bar is just a stone’s throw away from the city centre. The restaurant and bar offers quiet, informal dining in a relaxed atmosphere to both hotel guests and visitors alike. Metro West End is friendly and welcoming, with the modern colours and shapes adding to the contemporary feel that is offered by the fresh food on both the bar and restaurant menus. The food is both traditional in the form of a Taste of Scotland menu offering many Scottish favourites and meets more contemporary tastes throughout the al a carte menu that contains world-wide influences.

We found this restaurant by chance and we were really pleased we did! The food was first class as was the service! The staff were fab with the kids and we got to enjoy the beautiful meal in peace! We would recommend the salmon and the steak as well as the starters ribs and goats cheese! Best meal I've had for a long time!

We stopped off for a drink on our way to Murrayfield on Saturday afternoon - the Metro West End had set up a bar in a room behind the restaurant which was buzzing with thirsty supporters - this was really well managed and we decided to stop in on our return from the match.
We arrived about 2030 by this time we decided to eat - the service was good , the place was really busy but the staff were calm and in control throughout. I had a trio of venison sausages and my wife some fish - the portions were good size and everything tasty. The drinks were a little on the pricey side , however we had to drown our sorrows somewhere after another loss for Scotland at Murrayfield.

We will be back _ thank you.

This was the closet to our hotel so nipped in on the off chance, very pleasant decor and setting. Food was good and hot, service was excellent and very reasonably priced as well.

We're staying nearby and I found this restaurant in an internet search. It advertised a two or three course "early" menu up to 6.30pm which sounded nice and good value, but we were only offered the a la carte or "Taste of Scotland" at 5.30pm. While this wasn't a big deal, this sort of thing always makes me wonder about a place. The choice of a la carte starters was quite limited, so we just had main courses which were nicely cooked and arrived promptly. The service was pleasant and courteous, however there is nothing about this restaurant that would prompt the comment "worth the detour".

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent visit to Metro West End. Guest feedback is important to me as we look to continuously improve out customer service and menu selections.
It was pleasing to read that you enjoyed the food when it arrived promptly to your table.

The "eat early menu" you mentioned is in fact the "taste of Scotland" but it is offered at a reduced price.
I would be happy to explain this in more detail for any future visits if you wish. Please contact me adam.gray@apexhotels.co.uk

Warm Regards,
Adam Gray
